Every organization struggles with a bottom 20% of non-performing employees even at the highest level. Where a once-effective employee (at any level) begins to flounder or derail, some questions must be considered beyond the expediency of disengagement.

- Have a staff with incredible potential but performs sub-optimally? Are you always up at night wondering what you can do to this valued but underperforming employee?
- Struggle with a “Problem” employee and all turnaround efforts have been more orthodox than practical?
- Have a member of your team influencing performance because he/she lacks effective people’s skills, is abrasive with others or is so isolated and unavailable to colleagues?,
